Broadcasting from October 2007 to March 2009, the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 series is directed by Seiji Mizushima and scripted by Yousuke Kuroda.

The year is 2307 A.D. While the Earth’s reserves of fossil fuels have been depleted, humanity has obtained a new, nearly infinite source of energy to replace them in the form of large-scale solar-powered generation systems based on three huge orbital elevators. However, the benefits of this system are available only to a handful of major powers and their allies.
These orbital elevators belong to three superpower blocs: the Union, the Human Reform League and the AEU. These confederations continue to play a grand zero-sum game for the sake of their own prestige and prosperity. Thus, even in the 24th Century, humanity has yet to unite as one.
In this world of unceasing conflict, a private armed organization steps forward, declaring their intention to eliminate war through martial force. Using the power of their mobile suits combatively, a series of four high-performance machines each dubbed “Gundam,” the paramilitary organization known as Celestial Being takes the world stage, beginning armed interventions within all the world’s nations.
The popular 00 series received a theatrical film in 2010, titled Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer set two years after the end of the series in 2314 AD.
A stage play adaptation of the anime series, Mobile Suit Gundam 00- Awakening By Destruction-, debuted in February 2019, with Fumiya Matsuzaki as director and playwright, and 00’s anime director Seiji Mizushima supervising the production. A sequel to the play was performed in February 2022, titled Awakening By Destruction- Re:(in)novation.
In Mid-March 2022, a spin-off CG anime project was announced by director Mizushima in collaboration with Tamashii Nations’s “Metal Build” figure line.

It is the year P.D. 323. Gjallarhorn’s political interference in Arbrau escalated into an armed conflict and came to an end thanks to Tekkadan.
News of Tekkadan’s exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a young man born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the initial contest for colony development, is a remote planet in which the four economic blocs have little interest. It is now used as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don’t even have IDs.
